About Reese’s MaGIC Fund
In honor of her daughter Reese, Jenn Hobby, a local radio personality on Star 94.1, set out to support the work of her life-saving oncologist, Dr. Thomas Olson. She did this by creating Reese’s MaGIC Fund which has raised more than $330,000 in the past five years.
This money goes to support Dr. Olson’s international efforts with germ cell tumor research and solid tumor research at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center.
The Malignant Germ Cell Tumor International Consortium or MaGIC for short, is a group of 32 physicians from 9 different countries with various specialties who have come together to advance the advance the treatment of germ cell tumors. Together the MaGIC Consortium has accomplished more strategic targeting of treatment to germ cell tumors and has opened three new clinical trials internationally.

About the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center
“Your child has cancer” are words no parent ever wants to hear. But, when a kid does face cancer or a blood disorder, we’re here to help and couldn’t do it without support from donors like you. Treating more than 480 new cancer patients in 2022 and following nearly 2,000 patients with sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta cares for more kids with cancer than anywhere else in Georgia or in the Southeast.
Our doctors are experienced in treating children with every known form of cancer and blood disorder, from the most common to those rarely seen. In just one visit, our patients have access to specialists, counselors, therapists, and other caregivers and support team members in one location. This makes it easier on sick kids and their families.
Just think, more kids than ever are beating childhood cancer and blood disorders right here in metro Atlanta. Their stories will inspire you; their families deserve our support. Imagine what that means to parents who have tried everything but are holding onto hope for one more option. With your generous support, it means they aren’t in this alone. We want all of our patients—regardless of their diagnosis—to get back to being kids and growing up to live full and happy lives after treatment.
